Writing Curriculum Intent

At Overchurch Junior School, we endeavour to ensure our children have exciting opportunities and reasons to write across the curriculum.

By the time our children leave Overchurch Junior School, we hope they will be fluent, confident writers who have the confidence and desire to experiment with new, powerful vocabulary and use high level punctuation effectively within their writing.

We want our children to enjoy writing, whether that be in English lessons, Topic lessons or writing for pleasure.

We believe that writing opportunities should be inspired by high-quality texts that excite children and give them a purpose to write. Due to this, the writing that we produce in our English lessons is based upon the Year group text identified in our English Long Term Plan.

By giving children ample opportunities to write, we hope to build the  writing stamina and enjoyment of our children. We want to inspire authors of the future!
